Today’s ETF Movers

The market continues to show its resiliency today and is battling resistance areas in the Dow (10440) and the Nasdaq at 2100.  However, volume is not particulary heavy today considering the magnitude of the move.  If the Dow and Nasdaq can hold above resistance levels and volume picks up significantly above the average levels in the last hour of trading, it would be a BIG step in the right direction.

Here’s a look at the ETF’s that are moving with volume today (data as of 2:30 EST):

Ticker Name Price Today Price Change % Vol Change From Avg DI20 DI40 RS % From 50DMA % From 200DMA
IBB Ishares Nasdaq Biotech 71.61 2.08 77 9 8 41 7.54 4.13
EWC Ishares Canada 18.85 1.4 93 5 5 63 7.84 10.88
RTH HLDRS Retail 98.88 1.14 56 -1 2 49 5.48 3.7
ILF Ishares Latin America 94.19 0.75 60 2 1 74 7.31 17.99
IGW Ishares Semiconductor 55.12 1.51 59 -2 0 49 5.39 7.11
PPH HLDRS Pharma 72.74 0.99 32 -1 -1 62 -2.43 1.07
EFA Ishares EAFE Index 52.4 0.87 60 0 -2 58 0.23 1.06
IJS Ishares S&P 600/Barra Value 63.25 1.09 133 -4 -4 61 6.05 7.79
IGV Ishares Software 39.22 0.87 46 -5 -6 60 2.08 0.85

You see that semis, healthcare related stocks and select software are doing well.  How about the Canada ETF!  It broke out of a nice looking base with volume yesterday and looks very strong.

Note: The DI 20 and 40 scores are proprietary indicators of SelfInvestors.com that measure demand in a stock based on price and volume movements over a period of 20 and 40 days.  The higher the score, the greater the demand.  It’s not surprising that the Biotech ETF (IBB) is showing the highest DI scores in the chart above.  Take a look at the chart and you’ll see high volume buying and low volume selling.  It has soared above resistance of the 50 and 200 day moving averages in the last couple of weeks.
